- South African singer and dancer Makhadzi has been featured in a CNN documentary which details her life story
- The Limpopo musician opened up about how she started out in her craft and how she pushed herself to get out of the village
- The Murahu hitmaker thanked Master KG for exposing her to a big audience and encouraging her to stay true to her native Venda culture
Makhadzi recently featured in her own CNN documentary as part of their African Voices feature.
In the doccie, Makhadzi opened up about her journey to the top. Having grown up in a rural village in Venda, Makhadzi had to fight for her place in a competitive industry.
She explained that she would walk from the village to the nearest town, barefoot, in order to busk for the masses. Her usual spot was at a taxi rank, where she would play her music and dance for some spare change.
The musician went on to share how she met Master KG further down her career. She attributed much of her success to him as he is the one who convinced her to keep performing and singing in her native Venda language.
Social media users were proud to see a South African featured on the international platform and super happy for Makhadzi to have reached that level. Taking to social media, many share their thoughts.
“Makhadzi is a beacon of hope that, is possible in this hopeless universe, she's true Queen, may ancestors and God protect her always from dark forces of the music industry.”
“Stick to your Venda... I felt that one. Thank you for staying true.”
“Couldn't help but smile all through her video. She's such a breath of fresh air,so genuine and talented. With all the love she's getting, she will fill that stadium up. We love Makhadzi!”
“This was beautifully presented, I got to know you and your music better. Without a doubt, now I can attend your concert as before I didn't have much information. You're strong, talented and represented Africa and women so well my Queen.”
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that Makhadzi has reportedly moved on from Master KG and is now in the arms of a wealthy businessman.
Several local publications have reported that Makhadzi is dating Zwivhuya Nelwamondo, the CEO at Lwams Africa. The man is more popularly known as Zwi Lwams.
Lwams Africa has been sponsoring several of Makhadzi’s recent gigs. In addition, the Venda artist and businessman have been snapped in the same areas all too often. Social media users did the maths and concluded that the pair are dating.
From all the pics that the couple are snapping, it seems Lwams is spoiling Khadzi just as she deserves.
However, given the scrutiny that her previous relationship with Master KG garnered, it’s understandable why the muso has chosen to keep this relationship on the low.
